He's suddenly been recognized »s a fine actor, possibly a great one, since his appearance on Broadway in "Don Juan in Hell." «',The man most 'Americans think Pf as the personification of continental love-making doesn't consider himself primarily a love-maker. He Is- an actor, he says, and a versatile one. ?;-I?e signed an autograph on the back of an envelop^ for a well- minked matron as 'ge told of his Varied stage background. j-i"My craft is acting. In French movies and on the French stage I Played all type of roles Even after IT *, came to America I played all typos of roles. But three or four pictures—like 'Algiers' and 'Love Affair*—were very successful. And so the- public thinks of me as only a lover. for years. Believe me, Mr. Boyer, I'll treasure this moment." Boyer scrawled his signature on the paper, smiled briefly and turned away. 'Come on," he said, 'let's go someplace where .it's quieter." "Lately, of course, I've stayed away from love-making parts. In nay last three pictures, I played a priest, a 70-year-old doctor and a Hindu.

He didn't say it at all, says Boyer, who wants to be considered as an actor and not "as only a. lover." part only by definition." Boyer is a quiet-spoken, conservatively-dressed man who signs autographs graciously but obviously doesn't enjoy the sport. His hair is thin and graying, but his appeal to the ladies is still strong. He says he read about 200 scripts since his last Broadway appearance <!'RerT Gloves" In 1949) looking for a .good part. Most of them never reached Broadway. Those that did, B&yer says with a smile, were flops. -""It proves to me my judgment •was sound," he says. ' h' .' i. « * * He jumped at Charles Laughton's invitation the production of ."Don Juan," which is the dream sequence of George Bernard Shaw's classic, "Man and Superman." Laughton, Boyer, Cedric Hardwicke and Agnes Moorehead comprise the four-character cast. " Shaw was still alive when the idea began to take shape, and Boyer Is proud that the'Irish playwright approved the casting. Particularly LOOKING FOR VALENTINE IDEAS?

"But I have trouble finding a good part. My accent limits me so. I can't play any Shakespeare or any Shaw—Don Juan was a Spaniard so I can play him, by stretching things a little." * * * It was Boyer's difficulties with English which made him concentrate on movies, rather than the stage, when he first came to America. "In the movies, you know," he says, "if you make a slip, they can shoot it over. But on the stage, if you slip, you've slipped." His relations with television have also been affected by the language barrier. He says flatly that he'll never do a live television play. "On television," he says,-shuddering a little at the thought, "if I made a fumble, I'd get more panicky than someone who's spoken English from birth. But I'm very glad they invented television — I enjoy watching it." * * » The star groaned a little when the "Casbah" quote was mentioned. "I seem to be spending my life denying that I ever said that," he said, wearily. "Some impersonator dreamed that one up. I don't mind impersonators, but I don't particularly encourage them, either."

Extension engineer O. J. Trenary advocates a one-pole metering installation to put electricity to,.work t5p~~eTflciency. Feeder lines radiate to other/structures from a distribution pole. Low voltage, relay-control systems or multiple-control switches can be used to regulate yard lights conveniently from various locations on the farmstead. Trenary suggests an electrically- heated stock drilling cup near the dairy bar.. The electric pump should be, supplied by a separate feeder, Trenary says, to keep it in firefighting trim in case flames should destroy buildings connected to othS- feeders. Other systems are just as safe, easily - expanded and economical, Trenary adds. Wires may be placed underground as well as overhead and meters can be located on the outside or inside of suitable buildings. In all cases, however, Trenary concludes, the service equipment and the meter should be placed at a point as near as practical to the electric-load center of the farmstead.
